Mac Impassioned Lipstick Review and Swatches


Funny story about this lipstick. When I went into Mac and was so surprised to see this the recent Mac Fashion Sets collection. In this collection Mac took all the best selling lipsticks from different regions and made matching lipglosses and nail polishes. The first thing I grabbed was the Pink Nouveau lipglass then I saw something neon and pink next to it, I immediately swatched it and fell in love. It turned out to be Impassioned lipstick. My first thought was to get it but then I remembered that its a permanent shade that I could pick up anytime. I went to cash out and one of the mua's asked if I saw Impassioned and he thought that I would love it. So I told him did and I'll get it another time since its perm. He almost screamed at me that its not perm in Trinidad and that I need it. I love that they know me so well! I love this lipstick!




This lipstick comes in the traditional black Mac bullet packaging which I think looks so sleek and modern. Like all Mac lipsticks it also has a yummy vanilla scent which is undetectable when on the lips. 



Mac describes this lipstick as an amped up fuchsia. In my opinion this is a neon red-pink shade with some orange/coral thrown into the mix. It literally is like a watermelon pink. When I said earlier I spotted something neon I really meant it. This lipstick is bright!! Perfect for hot weather especially here in the Caribbean where its always hot! This lipstick imo will also look great on a variety of skintones.






It really does look like watermelon right?

Mac's Impassioned lipstick is an Amplified finish. Amplified lipsticks are notorious for long wear, high pigmentation and for being extremely moisturizing. Impassioned does not disappoint. It literally glides onto the lips leaving it feeling incredibly moisturized with a semi-glossy finish. I cannot get over how pigmented this product is. I love how opaque the coverage is. This lipstick also lasts an incredibly long time. I got close to about six hours wear with Impassioned.  It does leave a stain though as most highly pigmented bright lipsticks do.

The red-pink stain left behind

Here are some photos of me wearing this lipstick





Brand: M.A.C
Shade: Impassioned
Color: Watermelon red/pink
Finish: Amplified
Cost: TT$130/ USD 14.50

 Overall

I really recommend going out and getting this one. It is permanent in the US but is unfortunately not here in Trinidad although it is currently here as part of the Fashion Sets collection. 

That watermelon photo has me craving. Think I'm going to go out and get me a big ole watermelon! What about you. 

Love and watermelon
